Biographical / Historical

The Interstate Canal was constructed between 1905 and 1915. Since 1909 water for the North Platte Project has been diverted from the river by the Whalen Diversion Dam near the Wyoming - Nebraska border; the canal follows the contour of the land for 95 miles to Lake Alice and Lake Minatare Reservoirs northeast of Scotts Bluff, Nebraska.
